Elvis Presley made a special fashion of his famous and spectacular stage outfits, sometimes referred to as 'jumpsuits'. The name 'Elvis' is heard of in every corner of the world, and nearly everybody has heard about the dynamic performer dressed in a typical 'seventies suit' with rhinestones and embroideries in different patterns. But what many people don't know, is that these suits have their own name and their own story to tell. Not many people know how these outfits came to be characteristics for Elvis on stage, and their development during the years. It all started with the ['Black Leather Suit' in 1968, and ended with the 'Mexican Sundial Suit' in 1977. Elvis became King Of Concerts in the late sixties and seventies - and the stage outfits became an important part of his shows. In this encyclopedia of more that 500 pages we will present you to a full documentary of all Elvis' suits from his famous '68 Comeback Special, his return to live performances in Las Vegas in 1969 and his many tours, including the two documentaries, Elvis : That's The Way Its Is and Elvis : On Tour and the TV Specials Aloha From Hawaii and the 1977 TV Special - through the 1970's.

You will have the background story of each and every suit, when Elvis used them for the first and the last time - and their whereabouts today. We will also give you the background story of the very skilled designers who made these famous outfits. Elvis often mixed suits and belts as he pleased. You will be presented to them all.

This book is the result of hundreds of working hours with research and 'digging' through enormous amounts of documentation. This book is not meant only for the hardcore 'jumpsuit'-fan, but also as an encyclopedia for fans all over the world to learn more about these great, original stage-outfits.

Never has a book been more complete on this issue, and you will see rare photos and photos you have never seen before. The background of the suits and the stories of those who created and designed them are presented for you. Elvis became an icon in these outfits.

If you liked the book, Elvis The Concert Years, you will be doubly impressed with this work of art.
